Welcome to Sherwood State School. Here at Sherwood we have the good fortune of having a very supportive school community, one that values a quality education and one that is willing to exemplify the necessary home and school partnership in education. Our students are polite, kind and curious and come to us with a range of diverse backgrounds.
Our staff, both teaching and non-teaching have a collective strong moral purpose when it comes to valuing and nurturing children, and of course a strong commitment to delivering a quality education for all students. We are all very proud of our school and this is why we continually strive to improve the literacy skills of all students.
Since the start of 2012, we have been implementing the National Curriculum, a curriculum that has given us a clear and consistent pathway. Our school also implements the GRR (Gradual Release of Responsibility) model, which provides us with core focus on relevant and effective pedagogy.
Our extra-curricular offerings such as the sports program the arts program, the environmental education program and the extension and enrichment program (including the instrumental music program) add to the quality education available to students at this school.
We have a diverse range of students who are well catered for by various programs such as the EALD (English as an Additional Language and Dialect) program, the Special Education Program, the Leaning Support Program, the LOTE (Chinese) program and the Early Years Program.
Our school's facilities provide a wonderful learning environment for all students. The new multi-purpose hall, the swimming pool, our oval and our playgrounds are all fantastic features of our school.
An integral component of the school ethos is the capacity-building and values education program, "You Can Do It". This assists our students to grow as individuals and active members of our community.
Parents are encouraged to become part of the school community through many forums, events and activities. Communication between home and school is vital and we value the essential home-school partnership for improving learning outcomes.
Should you enrol your child at Sherwood State School, we strongly believe you will have made an excellent choice.
